The Australian Muslim History Gallery digital upgrade was an opportunity to celebrate the interplay of physical artefacts and their digital augmentation, with face-to-face interactions with notable Muslim personalities within the wider community and myriad moments of self-discovery and visual abstraction. Our process involved aligning curated museum content to the web and local curricula, as well as creating immersive digital displays and environments. We placed an emphasis on revealing and celebrating the perhaps lesser-known contributions of Muslims to Australia’s history.
